#LDSConf – 3 Nephi 29

CLICK HERE to read 3 Nephi 29.

Mormon then writes that when all these things began to happen, even the Gentiles receiving these records (which we now call the Book of Mormon), we can know that the Father is keeping His covenant to gather His people and restore them to their lands of inheritance (verse 1).

All the words of all the holy prophets shall be fulfilled (verse 2).

He will keep His promises!

He will remember us!

He will remember us, and the covenants He has made with us (verse 3).

We ought not spurn these things, or reject these words, or ignore prophets in the latter-days, for He is the same God, our same Father, now completing the work He begun so long ago (verse 4).

Those who deny the Christ or His works are warned (verse 5), as are those who deny the prophets, who deny revelation, and who deny other works and powers of the Holy Spirit – including gifts and healing and tongues (verse 6).

Yea, who unto him that shall say at that day, to get gain, that there can be no miracle wrought by Jesus Christ; for he that doeth this shall become like unto the son of perdition, for whom there was no mercy, according to the word of Christ!  Yea, and ye need not any longer hiss, nor spurn, nor make game of the Jews, nor any of the remnant of the house of Israel; for behold, the Lord remembereth his covenant unto them, and he will do unto them according to that which he hath sworn (verses 7-8).

We cannot change God, nor limit who He is.

We cannot stop the power of the Savior by not believing in it.

He will keep His covenants, and we must keep ours (verse 9).

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
